PG&E Center for Gas Safety and Innovation
RIM completed the design for this showcase project with Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) to relocate and consolidate three individual PG&E groups from existing locations in Concord and San Ramon to a new consolidated operations facility in Dublin, California. The functions of the three groups vary. The Test Lab group responsibilities involve testing, evaluation and implementation of measurement and control devices and systems used throughout the PG&E system. Measurement & Procedures group activities include research, testing and evaluation of new gas construction methods, tools and technologies. Lastly, the Non-Destructive Evaluation group reviews gas operations methods, tools and technologies. This combined building provides workspace for approximately 50 employees with varying workstation styles and collaboration zones. This state-of-the-art facility is a milestone for PG&E’s latest innovations and technologies with gas piping, design and monitoring.
